The Unusual Pear weaving looms are simplistic, lightweight, durable and incredibly easy to use! They are suitable for all ages and are perfect for beginners. The Ultimate Kit comes with everything you need to get started when it arrives.
Make your own kit. You add these items: 1x Small bamboo weaving needle (10cm) 1x Small bamboo weaving loom (15.5cm w x 21cm h) 1x comb 1x hanger
The small is the perfect size to finish a weaving in 1-2 hours. You'll often find one of these looms tucked in my handbag for those times I'm stuck in a queue, traffic, or just to whip out and weave wherever I want to! This size is also great for the kiddies to have a go.
Hangers: These beautiful eco woven wall hanging hangers are made from FSC certified bamboo and sanded by hand to create soft, smooth sides and edges. You will receive 6 hangers in a pack - please choose your size from the drop down menu.
Dimensions of the hangers: 18.5cm long (7.25inch)
The hangers can be used in two variations to hang your woven wall hanging.
Option 1: Using one hanger per weaving. If you thread the warp loops through the hanger (or sew your piece to the hanger or however you like to finish your weavings) you can then thread a piece of string through the holes, tie a knot and hang it up! With using one hanger, you will see the warp threads over the top of the hanger, just like you do when you use a piece of dowel or driftwood etc..
Option 2: Same as above but before adding the piece of string through the holes, add a second hanger on top of the first and then tie the two hangers together with the piece of string that you will use to hang the piece up.
Another thing you can use the hanger for is using it as a shed stick for your weaving while it's still on the loom. Before you begin your weaving, thread the hanger over and under each thread of your loom. You can then use the open shed as guide for your needle (rather than having to pick over and under each thread). This will work on one side only, you will have to still pick over and under each of the threads when you alternate with each pass Download the Beginners Guide to Weaving here: http://www.theunusualpear.com/blogs/guides-2/94555206-lap-weaving-looms

These weaving looms and tools have been designed by Rainie Williams of The Unusual Pear and are laser cut in Sydney, Australia with 4.5mm FSC certified bamboo. Each bamboo loom, needle and comb are sanded by hand resulting in slight surface variations between each item.
